Gateway between publishing and creative industries


Opportunities for new partnerships

THE ARTS+ is the place where international content professionals and content professionals form new partnerships: publishing experts, rights managers, film and games experts, business developers, start-ups, multipliers and influencers. This opens up opportunities for co-operation: for example, an agent looking for new streaming content might find a fan fiction writer whose story idea can be perfectly adapted for film/TV.
